<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>More than a month after Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Najeeb Ahmed went missing under mysterious circumstances, his mother Fatima Nafees has challenged the Delhi Police to find her son within 24 hours, or she will knock the doors of the Uttar Pradesh (UP) Police.”This is really shameful. The Delhi Police have not been able to trace my son even after 38 days. I challenge them to get him back to me within 24 hours or I’ll file an FIR in UP,” she said during a protest at the Parliament Street on Wednesday. “If I had known that the Delhi Police was this inefficient, I would have contacted the UP Police in the beginning only,” she added.Najeeb Ahmed, a first-year MSc student at JNU, has been missing since October 15 following an altercation with some ABVP members the night before at Mahi Mandavi hostel.Najeeb’s kin and some JNU students had met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on November 20, seeking his intervention in the case. “The Chief Minister had assured us of taking all possible measures top trace Najeeb. He also said he will rope in the UP Police in the matter,” Nafees said.Last month, a SIT was formed to trace Najeeb following a direction from Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who also announced a reward of Rs 2 lakh for any information on the student. The reward amount was later raised to Rs 5 lakh.
